Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.

You can still drive the car but you have limited rear shocks. I wouldn't do it for any longer than I had to. If money for replacement of the air shocks is a concern, there is a cheaper "regular" shock retrofit kit available.

If the compressor is working and actually pumping out air, might need to check your lines dont have a leak by disconnecting them from the bags. If pressured air is making it to the end of the line, then bags may need to be inspected and one or both replaced. However it is more likely that the lines are leaking or the compressor pump needs a service. Just a new set of rings in the unit. Good luck, hope it helps.

Hi, this is a common issue with most air ride trucks of this nature. the air compressor unit has failed and it will need to be rebuilt or replaced. its cheaper to just replace the compressor rather than to get it rebuilt. The most likely issue will be that the seal has been blown and it is unable to compress the air flow through the air lines.
Pleas rate and god bless:)

It sounds to me like you have a hole or cracks in your airbag. The dealership typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. The Compressor is the problem but the airbags are bad as well. When the air bag has a hole or leak in it the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. It sounds like this is what happened. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. This is a PERMANENT fix and ALOT cheaper than going to the dealership. I added the link below so you can check it out. http://www.strutmasters.com/ford-suspension-parts-s/75.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!
